Welcome to My Classrooms

I am thrilled that Hopewell Area School District will be meeting the needs of all our learners by giving the choice of two learning environments for the 2020-21 school year, both hybrid and cyber. For over 20 years I have had the pleasure of serving my community as a 3rd-grade teacher in the “Ingenious Lab” at Hopewell Elementary School. This year I am excited to be taking on the role of K-2 Learning Support Cyber Teacher. WAIT… SCRATCH THAT! I am now a 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade cyber teacher, as well as a 3-4th Learning Support Teacher! No worries, I got this! haha!

I went on to explain that my career path had changed to being a cyber teacher for the upcoming school year. The beautiful part was being able to share the WHY behind it… because that is what our children need right now.
